Having a hard time with IR [#permalink]

BOOKMARKED
Well, after some easy practice with free questions online, I have decided to practice with OG 13. So far I have only done 18 questions and I found them quite challenging. The readings was pretty long and I often could not detect what the question actually ask or to be exact the subtle difference in each? I think multiple reasoning might be my weakest link. I am not quite sure if my approaching is wrong or i was not quite awake at 2 am or the questions are just tough? Anyone is in the same shoes?

Anyways, I will try to practice as much as I can and see if I can get the feel of graphs and such. Do you know where I can get the detail analysis/answer keys for the questions? I can only find solution up to question 21. Thank you.

Hi gmatfighter12,

In case you haven't seen yet, you can practice some of those multi source reasoning questions and other IR questions here: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... -reasoning

Some of the video explanations may help you see things in a different way. Feel free to post questions and we'd be happy to help.

Hey,

I am in the same situation as you. I am just getting hammered in IR. 2 &1/2 minutes is just not enough to answer IR questions. I wonder if there is any trick/strategy to get though the IR without messing up. I took a couple of MGMAT CAT exams and the best I could get was a 4. I don't know how similar MGMAT is to the actual test.

I am in the same situation like you guys.
I gave an MGMAT CAT test with IR for the first time yesterday and scored a 0 in IR
Are you guys studying anything besides OG 13 for IR ?

If you aren't already, you can further practice your IR skills here with 100+ questions: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-practice-t ... reasoning/

IR can be tricky - especially some of those two-part and multi source questions that really put your reasoning skills to test. Part of IR is developing an ability to focus only on the areas that matter. Part of it is getting used to the new question types. So get as much practice as you can - but don't let IR psych you out.

Hi danziam,

Many Business Schools have publicly stated that they do not consider an applicant's IR score when reviewing an application. As such, you should NOT be too concerned with the IR section. You should still try your best, but you shouldn't expend too much energy or become too stressed out by that section of the GMAT. Since IR does not contribute to your score out of 800, you should adjust your studies and Test Day plans accordingly.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
